COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the earliest examples of the Russian Imperial Stout in the United States, Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.
Available October-March.

Dark (like my coffee), thick, luscious, coffee and chocolate, big head, one of the very best stouts I've had. Cannot wait to roadtrip to Kalamazoo.

Nice and proper imperial stout. Ashy, bitter stew of coffee and dark chocolate. Good balance of alcohol/bitter ratio. For its price it is an outstanding brew

Czarne z gesta drobna piana, zarowno aromat jak i smak to poezja dla odbiorcy tego dziela. Trudno jest mi opisac slowami to co sie dzieje w tej butelce. Mysle ze wystarczy jak napisze ze to jest naprawde SZTOS!!!

Bottle from de Fles Winkel. Very dark with Brown head. Smells like boozy chocolate raspberry and play doh. Chocolate, moderate bitterness, with some smooth sweetness.

[2015 Vintage] Pours deep deep brown. Looks totally black in the glass. Nicely lacing tan head. Aroma of caramelized malts, bitter coffee, dark chocolate. Warming alcoholic presence. Taste is sweet, roasty smooth cappuccino coffee, cocoa nibs, malts and medium to intense charred bitterness in the finish. Lovely balance between sweet and bitter. Warming. Oily mouthfeel, medium to full body, soft carbonation.

Black beer with very little brown head. Aroma is roasted malt. Taste is chocolate, cocoa, alcohol, malt, coffee. Very long cocoa aftertaste with bitterness from alcohol. Excellent beer!

Had it next to the alesmith speedway which was a little better. This one has more heat and maybe oats. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dobre piwo, ale niczego nie urywa. Mocno wytrawne i kawowe. Ładna piana, fajnie gęste. Ale ot taki zwykły RIS.

355ml bottle @ Pudel. Poured pitch black with a thin brown head. Dark fruity, dark chocolate, ashy aroma, wood quite much. Flavor has dark chocolate, roasted malt, ash, tobacco, wood. Sweet finish, lingering long chocolate finish. Long warming finish. Slow sipper.

Tried on tap for the first time, lives up the the hype. Nothing in this beer is too dominate and every flavor blends well. A fantastic stout that almost seems too simple, but keep drinking and you'll keep finding more in this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
